"Malice aforethought" and "cui bono" would be Sherlock's procedural. "Accidents" like this only happen for a purpose.

Maybe Alec likes to play with the real stuff?

"In 2005, federal regulators fined Greystone Television and Films $650..."

Six hundred and fifty American dollars? If the fine had been 650 million, then live rounds would NOT be found on any film production set, and cinematographer Halyna Hutchins would still be alive.

From what I've heard there were a number of cast people doing target practice on the set. Why that didn't set off alarm bells, I don't know. In any event, based on Baldwin's claim that the gun went off without the trigger being pulled says to me he is no firearms expert.

It doesn't matter how the live ammo got there; it is the responsibility of the person wielding the firearm to check it thoroughly to ensure safe handling. Which, apparently, Mr. Baldwin NEGLECTED to do.
